Catch of the Day / Ebay Craigslist finds Part 3.

Hey folks, a thrift store I passed by today was calling me in to have a look... Guess what I found... Another pair of my favorite cycling shoes; Detto-Pietro winter race shoes from the '60s -early '70s IN MY SIZE! The shop owner thought they were ladies bowling shoes... They had 'em priced a bit high at 16 bucks, but it was half off day! What's your latest cool find?

I'm hoping this isn't techncally a numbskull due to my lack of knowledge in this field, but, it looks legit.

http://norfolk.craigslist.org/bik/926874886.html

I'd really like to pick this guy up, but a lack of money and weeked plans work against me.

So, if you're in the Norfolk, VA area, grab it before it gets trashed...

P.s. What's the info on this bike, the seller hasn't gotten back to me, but the eye's of the C&V forum should be able to determine the make of this bike.

I started a thread on this bike yesterday though it also deserves to be place here. I got it for a whopping $50. Also a Campy SR crank set with dust caps in mint condition AND with the matching complete BB for $37. The seller even sent me the box.

Incredible! Did you resort to hypnotism or laughing gas? Is that Team a 753? Looks to be about 60cm. Mind boggling - great catch!

That's two catches. The crankset would cost more than several complete bicycles that I've purchased. (maybe even a couple of them combined)

I had a nice stroke of luck this evening! I bought a Giant Cypress DX last weekend to get a set of rims and brakes for the Shogun. Not a bad buy for $45, I thought at the time.

Tonight.. I looked at the Prelude, and then the already partially scavenged Cypress, and a light bulb went on over my head, lol. I popped the cranks off the Cypress, and measured the BB. It was only a couple of mm's off. I got out the BB tool, and went to work. I then walked over to the Nishiki International carcass, and pulled the 105 cranks off. I slipped the arms on the Prelude, and used the allen bolts from the Giant. Perfect fit, and almost the exact clearance as the original crank/BB! So, now the Pink Prelude has a low mileage cartridge BB, and a set of biopaced105 cranks. The Giant is the catch that keeps on giving, hehe.,,,,BD

Okay, I know you've been dying to see what a ten dollar 20-year-old Schwinn hybrid looks like fresh off the side of the road. You can't see it in the picture, but the chainstay protector says "Schwinn Team Issue 21 Speed"
I'll be scorching the local bike paths on this hot Team rig!!

Nope. I just payed what he was asking for it. It's not made of Reynolds 753; instead, Reynolds 531. And you're right-on the size; 60cm. Fit's me perfect.

Thanks USAZorro for your help with the Raleigh. That crank set just might be going on that Raleigh.

I wouldnt touch the crankset. Its value will drop by 75% once its used. If I had to guess, and I'm only guessing here, I'd say you can $400+ for the crankset BB and box.

The crankset and BB are not NOS. They look pretty much new but one can see in the chain ring a bit of wear. The rest of the crank set is perfect; no scratches or anything. The dust caps look as if they were never installed and so do the cups and spindle. They are mint, but not NOS. Still, I'm very happy I got them.

I need to pay better attention but I still wouldnt install them!!!! Dont under estimate what you can get for them........If you've ever watched Antiques Road Show you know that a good box can double the value of an item!!!
